River Clwyd, Rhyl

River Clwyd looking up, after the last week or so. Wader numbers are increasing well:

1 Green Sandpiper was a nice find along with 2 Common Sandpipers, over 100 Lapwing, 39 Dunlin and approx. 30 Ringed Plover.
A striking summer plumaged Turnstone was also good to see along with 10+ Curlew and 9 Oystercatchers

Over birds included about 200 Sandwich Terns, 2 Little Egrets, 5 Gooseanders, 2 Whitethroat and a large finch flock of 50+ consisting of Linnets, Gold and Greenfinch
A family of Swallows landed on nearby fence and posed for a few pictures:
